You may want to share the books and songs at home with your children that we are looking at this term.
Mama Panya’s Pancakes: A village Tale from Kenya – Mary and Rich Chamberlin.
On Beyond Zebra! – Dr Seuss
Greedy Zebra – Mwenye Hadithi
Wild – Emily Hughes
The Leopard’s Drum: An Asante Tale from West Africa- Jessica Souhami
Reading books: Reading books are changed weekly on a Thursday morning; It is important that reading books are returned on this day. Please can you ensure your child has a book bag and we also ask that you make a note in your child's reading record of any reading you do with them at home.
Reading records: At Elm Wood we consider reading to be an important part of your child's education and the reading record is a method of communication and an opportunity for you to share with us how your child is doing.
PE- Class 2 will have PE sessions once a week on a Monday morning. PE kits can be kept in school for the full half term.
Music - We are following the Charanga Scheme. Lessons this term are entitled Everyone! Children will listen and respond to a variety of musical pieces as well as singing and performing a range of songs.
Open mornings- Elm Wood has an open morning every Thursday from 8.30am. This is a great opportunity for you to come into the classroom to look at displays, see your child’s work and speak to the class teacher.
School uniform- Can we please ask for all items of clothing to be labelled with your child’s name or initials. Please can you ensure that your child has a labelled pair of Wellington boots in school for outdoor use.
